Johnson//Becker, PLLC is a nationwide product liability law firm who has represented over 700 clients burned by exploding pressure cookers.
Johnson//Becker has filed several lawsuits against Conair Corporation, alleging that their Cuisinart Electric Pressure Cookers caused a client’s burn injuries due to the ability to open the lid while still under pressure.
The number of pressure cooker lawsuits have been on the rise in recent years. This is due to alleged defective designs that cause the pressure cooker lid to be removable or spontaneously fly off while still under pressure. As a result, plaintiffs have been severely burned.
Cuisinart Pressure Cooker Explosion
Electric pressure cookers have been around since the 2000’s, making cooking more efficient with higher temperatures and pressure with generated heat. However, according to the lawsuits filed by Johnson//Becker, certain pressure cookers fail to warn consumers of the danger they pose if the lid is removable or explodes off during cooking. If this happens, the scalding hot contents could eject from the pressure cooker and land on bystanders and surrounding areas.
Cuisinart Pressure Cooker Injuries
Exploding pressure cookers ejecting scalding contents onto bystanders have sent them to the emergency room for burn injury treatments. Plaintiffs who have suffered severe burn injuries have had to endure extreme pain long after the incident, losing time at work and with family and friends.
Pressure cooker injuries have caused the following damages:
- First-, second-, and third-degree burns
- Doctor visits and/or hospitalization
- Skin grafts
- Lost time from work
- Permanent scarring and/or disfigurement
- PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder)
